Instead of waiting for us to bring junk food to the backcountry, crafty bears are heading straight for the source: Three drivers called 911 to report a black bear cub wandering through the drive-thru lane of a South Brunswick, New Jersey McDonald’s. 

Black bears are notoriously sly geniuses at getting our food, but you have to give this bear credit for advancing his species by avoiding bear canisters, bear bags, and trash cans altogether. No word yet on whether he supersized his Big Mac or went with a Happy Meal.
